Space4all : Space For all the Inhabitants of Planet Earth
Day: Sunday 18 September
Time: 18:15 - 19:15 CEST
Location: Room Paris South, Level 3, Hall 7, Paris Convention Centre
Space has long been synonymous with adventure, exploration and discovery. Today we even talk about space tourism and the exploitation of mining resources. All these ambitions if they meet today a reality, are to be compared to what space brings to the everyday life of the earthlings but also to the progress of science.
Without observation satellites, there would be no global warming measurements and therefore no sustainable development policies. Without Galileo, there would be no positioning of vehicles, but also of hikers, trains, and ships entering ports. Without microgravity experiments, there will be no bio-production for gene therapies in the future, nor experiments for a new agriculture. Without a lunar base, there will be no fundamental research on food, energy and oxygen in autonomy.
Space teaches us to live better on planet earth. Our daily life and our future will depend more and more on this scientific and human adventure.
